THE SHOW WORLD 


ON THE WAR PATH AT JAMESTOWN 


SHOW WORLD Bureau, 
WAR PATH, Jamestown, 
July 22, 1907. 

W ITH a list of attractions cover¬ 
ing almost every field of enter¬ 
tainment and In the establish¬ 
ing of which nearly $1,000,000 was 
expended by the promoters of the 
various enterprises, the War Path at 
Jamestown Exposition is a feature 
which no visitor to the Exposition can 
afford to ignore. At no exposition 
heretofore held has the field of amuse¬ 
ment been more thoroughly covered 
and while some of the features are 
not as massive as was the rule at the 
World’s Fair or the Pan-American Ex¬ 
position, they are stupendous enough 
to give the War Path a distinct indi¬ 
viduality and to place it in a class by 
itself. 

While the War Path proper lies to 
the west of the Lee Parade, extend¬ 
ing from Commonwealth avenue to 
Racon street and from Powhatan 
street to West street, the reserva¬ 
tion covering a tract of some 300 
acre®, there are spaces for attrac¬ 
tions in various parts of the ex¬ 
position enclosure which do not lack 
in importance. Among these may be 
mentioned the Miller Bros! 101 Ranch 
Wild West Show, the Philippine Res¬ 
ervation and others. The arrange¬ 
ment of the War Path is excellent 
and there is none of the crowding 
that has been conspicuous at similar 
affairs elsewhere. 

Old Friends on the War Path. 

If you attended the International 
Expositions at Chicago, Paris, Buf¬ 
falo, St. Louis or Portland, you will 
meet old friends on the War Path 
whom you knew on the “Midway,” 
the “Pike,” or the “Trail,” but James¬ 
town’s amusement center contains 
many new and novel attractions. 

Among the main attractions in the 
large brick structure known as “Col¬ 
onial Virginia,” a representation of 
the old Capitol at Williamsburg, is 
a reproduction of the first ball at the 
Capitol, the incidents in connection 
with Bacon’s rebellion and the de¬ 
struction of Jamestown by fire, are 
notable features of the exhibition. 
Destruction of San Francisco. 

The “Destruction of San Francisco” 
is a very life-like reproduction of that 
memorable catastrophe, with the rum¬ 
bling of the earthquake, the falling of 
buildings, the ascending flames and 
the upheaval of the sea. Manager 
Bullock is deserving of the success 
with which his efforts are meeting. 

In “Old Jamestown” there is a re¬ 
production of the streets, the Ceme¬ 
tery and many of the old scenes of 
the original settlement. You may 
walk through these streets and con¬ 
verse with John Smith, John Rolfe 
and his bride Pocahontas, and her 
. stern old parent, Powhatan. There is 
a theater, on the stage of which 
scenes and incidents of the original 
Jamestown are depicted in tableaux. 

The Battle of the Monitor and the 
Merrimac is not the only attraction 
of this nature. The Battle of Gettys¬ 
burg and the Battle of Manassas are 
reproduced in the most spectacular 
manner in buildings of gigantic di¬ 
mensions. 

No End to Amusements. 

The chain of places of amusement 
is seemingly endless, and several 
days would be required to see them 
all. You have not yet been carried 
through the American and Oriental 
bazaars, the Temple of Mirth or 
“Fair Japan” where you may sit and 
idle and dream in a tea garden, that 
impregnates you with the odor of 
rare flowers and plants from the far¬ 
away Orient, while some dainty Ge¬ 
isha girl serves you a cup of tea like 
unto the nectar of the gods. 

And you should not go away with¬ 
out seeing the “Alaska-KIondyke” 
which affords a perfect representa-

tion of mines and miners at work 
sifting real gold; the “Tours of the 
World,” which carry visitors by rail 
through many strange lands; the 
great “Friede Steel Lift,” which has 
taken the place of the Ferris wheel; 
the Esquimau Village, with its quaint 
inhabitants from the frozen Arctic; 
the Chutes; and the Ostrich Farm, 
with its thirty giant birds. 

Trixie and Paul Revere’s Ride. 

Two attractions that are of more 
than usual interest are those presid- 


journey, visiting all the historical 
spots en route, starting from Charles¬ 
town, and finishing at Lexington 
Green, where the first blow for free¬ 
dom is struck, the performance con¬ 
cluding with a realistic tableau rep¬ 
resenting the famous picture, “The 
Spirit of ’76.” All the scenes are 
faithfully reproduced by means of 
four immense panoramas revolving 
in various directions, whilst the elec¬ 
trical effects are on a most elaborate 
scale. The roster is: 


The Philippine Reservation 
nearly six acres and is located on;, 
Pocahontas street, at the southwest 
comer of the grounds. The display is 
one of unusual excellence and interest 
and is being well patronized. The'L 
enterprise is capably managed by T. ,J 
P. Sargent. William A. Sutherland is 1 
president and Mr. Sargent is vice-* 
president. Robert Keller is assistant 
manager. The staff is made up as 
follows: J. Mace Andrews, lecturer** 
Edward Benney, press representative* 
Frank Cole, advertising agent; Wil- £ 
liam Crawford, ticket seller, and Jack I 
Riordan, door talker. 

“Congress of Nations.” 

The Congress of Nations, or as it 
is better known, "The Beauty Show,’^| 
is under the management of D. Earl* 
McDonald, and he is assisted by Doc* 
tor Gilbert Flagg, who holds down* 
the “Front.” There are twenty tal-fl 
ented young ladies with this attrac* 
tion and they present a continuous 
performance which Mr. McDonald apt-| 
ly describes as “International vaudej 
ville.” 

The Swiss Alps. 

Although not a show in the strides 
sense of the word, this concession de¬ 
serves a word or two along with the 
War Path shows. Here the show-i 
men congregate after a hard day r 
labor and discuss their affairs over 
most excellent meal and real St. 
Louis beer. The Swiss Alps 
ducted by Fritz Muller and 


membered as having conducted the; 
Schlitz Pavilion at the Omaha Expo! 
sition, “Pabst on the Midway” at 
Buffalo, the “Falstaff Inn” at the St.. 
Louis World’s Fair and at the Port¬ 
land Exposition he conducted th( 
“Bismarck.” The Swiss Alps has « 
seating capacity for 3,500 people and 
the prices charged are very reason! 
able. 


LOUISE AICHEL. 

One of the handsomest and brightest members of the Knight For a Day 
company at the Whitney Opera House, Chicago, is Louise Aichel who is 
pictured above. She is quite popular with the patrons of this handsome 
playhouse. 


ed over by those well known show¬ 
men, Messrs. William H. Barnes and 
Charles E. Pelton, who have at James¬ 
town perhaps two of the biggest 
drawing cards on the grounds. 

Mr. Barnes exhibits the celebrated 
“Princess Trixie,” Queen of all edu¬ 
cated horses, a headline feature all 
over this country and Europe, and the 
most wonderful instance of almost 
supernatural equine sagacity the 
world has ever seen. 

“Trixie” continues to work the cash 
register, demonstrate the first four 
rules of arithmetic, spell the names 
or words suggested by her audience, 
and daily gives convincing proof of 
her amazing knowledge of music and 
colors. 

Paul Revere’s Ride is a novel de¬ 
parture in the Exposition business, 
and enjoys the distinction of being 
the one attraction that is in every 
respect new. A real horse and rider, 
galloping at full speed, make the 


G. W. Davis, stage manager; M. 
L. Kelly, chief electrical machinist; 
Miss Hume, ticket seller; Henry Ca¬ 
sey, door talker; Mrs. Smith Warner, 
pianist; George Tile, rider. In the 
tableaux are: Harold Smedley, Geo. 
Keene ; John Pizzini, Samuel Mc- 
Keown, William Murray, John Mc¬ 
Donald, Harry Fisher, George Snyder, 
G. W. Barr, Edward Williston and 
Henry Eustis. 

Monitor and Merrimac Fight. 

The Monitor and Merrimac enter¬ 
prise which is attracting unusual at¬ 
tention because of its completeness 
and excellence is managed by E. W. 
McConnell, and John W. Connery. 
The staff consists of J. J. Bailey, door 
talker; Miss Ollie Johnson, ticket 
seller: Profs. Smith Warner and J. 
P. Wild, orators; E. J. Austin, pro¬ 
ducer; John Wallis, electrician. The 
general press representative is James 
L. Hutton and he is ably assisted by 
Harry Daniels. 


Ferari’s Wild Animals. 

The animal jungle and arena of Col 
Francis Ferari occupy a prominen 
site on the War Path. To providj 
the proper environment for thesi 
aristocratic beasts, the Exposition 
Zoo and Amusement company has 
erected one of the finest auditoriums 
and animal courts used in the country 

As to the Ferari show, there is 
none better. His collection of ani¬ 
mals is in charge of Richard Bass and 
Robert MacPherson, who contribute 
to the acts of daring that characterize 
the performance in the arena. In 
addition to these Colonel Ferari of-f 
fers two women who are unexcellefl 
in their line—La Belle Selica and the! 
Princess Pauline. The latter has at-i 
tained world-wide fame through her 
daring work in the cages of wild 
beasts, while Selica’s troupe of lions 
gives the best exhibition of its kind 
extant. Teddy, the wonderful dan© 
ing bear, and O’Grady’s monkeys, to¬ 
gether with Captain Winston’s sea 
lions offer a program that is as va¬ 
ried as it is diverting. 

Streets of Seville. 

One of the greatest attractions 0 
the War Path is the La Gida Thef 
ter, wherein genuine Spanish dances 
are to be seen. Two sisters, the Sei 
oritas. Pearl and Diamanta, of thej 
ballet of the Royal Opera at Seville^ 
Spain, are special features 
Gida Theatre. It was very diffictjj 
for. C. E. Sabbague, the Concessit# 
aire of the “Streets of Seville,” to find 
real Spanish dancers, but he has su© 
ceeded beyond expectation. Spanish# 
sports, such as bull fighting, cock 
fighting, etc., will be features. Mu¬ 
sic by an orchestra of thirty pieces is 
being provided daily. 

The show people at JamestowfflB 
whose prospects appeared gloomy at 
the opening, are beginning to reap 
benefits and before the close of the 
exposition November, 30 they will 
have enjoyed the golden fruits of 
prosperity to which their enterprif 
and perseverance entitle them.

LIVELY CIRCUS WAR. 

Tom North Describes Battle of Billers at 
Bay City, Mich. 

■What will go down in circus history as 
the most hotly contested “battle of bill¬ 
ers" during white top season of 1907, 
took place at Bay City, Mich. The Hag- 
enbeck-Wallace shows had the town well 
billed for July 16. All crews had gone 
thinking everything lovely, when in jumps 
Bt Forepaugh-Sells brigade under “Kid” 



would read, “H. and W. July 16,” and 
the other half, “F.-S. August 22." The 
business portion of the city resembled a 
kaleidoscopic view of all the rainbow’s 
colors. Three, four and five stories high 
and every inch covered. Instructions 
were, "Spare no expense, but GET 
SPACE,” and they got it. 

Country routes were billed as never 
before. Route riders covered routes daily 
to keep “wised up” and see that no 
“covering” was done. The newspapers 
again opened up and column after column 
ran against the tirade and invasion of 
the “landscape-defiling advertisers”; pe¬ 
titions were hurled at the council to stop 
same, but to no avail. Four days and 
four nights put in these cfews; finally 
they did stop and for the best reason in 
the world; “THERE WAS NO MORE 
SPACE!” 

Both shows had to do tremendous busi¬ 
ness to cover the very heavy extra ex¬ 
pense. “Ducats,” “Skulls,” “Fakes,” 
“Broads,” or whatever you call ’em, fell 
in squads, because, as clever Harry Earl, 
general press representative of Hagen- 
beek-Wallace shows, said: “If you take 
the Devil in your boat, you must row 
him ashore.” TOM NORTH.

Twelve Reasons Why Our Film Service is What You Want Every Hour 
- - of Every Day in the Week =~ -■ 



DEPARTMENT A represents the Best Film Service Obtainable. ■ ■ • - — ■■ ■ ■ ■■■. 1 -- 

DEPARTMENT B represents Our Special Prices During the Summer Season: 

Two changes week of about 1,000 ft. each to each change, $12.00 Five changes week of about 1,000 ft. each to each change, $25.00 
Three changes week of about 1,000 ft. each to each change, 17.00 Six changes week of about 1,000 ft. each to each change, 28!00 
Four changes week of about 1,000 ft. each to each change, 21.50 Seven changes week of about 1,000 ft. each to each caange, 30.50 

DEPARTMENT C—Wholesale Film Rental; let us start you in business. Furnish us good security and we will 
rent films wholesale. You can do subrenting in your locality, deriving a good revenue. " 11 ?■■■■ 

“Don’t throw up the sponge” because business is not as good as it was. July and August is the dull season 
in the show business, the public is slow to attend inside amusements, but don’t let our pessimistic friends tell 
you the moving picture show is a thing of the past; the season will again open in August with a rush. The 
proper thing for you to do now is to lessen your expenses—don’t try to increase them by enlarging your pro= 
gramme with expensive acts. Take advantage of our liberal inducements in the rental of films. Electric fans 
are a good investment and will help your audience enjoy the performance. In this way you will live over the 
depressed season until your old standard shall return ten=fold.
